Yarn Along

This is the very exciting start of a Hannah Fettig Whisper Cardigan for ME! I've had this wool since Christmas burning a hole in my wool basket.  Its Malabrigo Sock in stonechat. First it was going to be a Vanadium, then a Tea Leaves but I've finally decided on the Whisper, which was what the chick at This is Knit advised me to knit with it in the first place.  Its funny how its can take you weeks to come back to where you started. I cast on using a circular needle using magic loop and and trying to switch balls every two rows like you're supposed to with these variegated hand dyed wools, but it just wasn't working for me.  So I pulled it out and cast on with my trusty old dpns.  I love knitting with dpns do you? Or do you prefer magic loop? I'm off to a friends place tonight to have a beer and hopefully knit.

Still reading this and this.

Happy Knitting!


  1. The yarn looks beautiful - I just finished my first socks using dpns.

  2. Yay! For you ! I love the yarn you chose and of course the pattern is perfection :)

  3. I am a DPN fan. I get all in knots with circulars :(
    Beer and knitting and friends, what could be better :)

  4. I quite like dpn's, just wish I was a little better at avoiding ladders!

    The yarn is beautiful, no wonder you wanted the perfect project for it. :)
